I will try & take a pic of the fix later, but it is 2 long screws that replace the 2 screws at the rear of the front diff case (up through the chassis) the end of the screw when fully home pokes out the top of the diff case by about 7mm. Then you have what looks like a small bolt with the centre of the shaft drilled & tapped to take the screw. this goes down through the big holes on the shock tower & when tightened up the chassis, diff case halves & shock tower are secured as one. Very handy little upgrade stops the tower breaking the upper diff case in a crash. I also used to like not having to change diff cases when the screw holes flogged out as the fix held it together anyway. It also pays to predrill the diff case before installing the long screws as they are as tight as a nuns .............

If you need one for the GP PM me I could lend you a set.

You must have the heavy duty one way. I have never seen the bearings or outdrives available seperatly for this. You could try Yokomo as it is made by them. Good Luck I think you will need it.

i found that by putting 33mm screws through the front diff case and the shocktower it virtually does the same job as 'the fix'

Its quite hard to get these bearings (one way)......i ordered what i thought were the correct bearings from AE, but they are the tiniest of fractions out.....maybe someone can shed some light on what the actual dimensions of this bearing are?

i have seen a carbon fiber chassis for the NTC3. anybody have an opinion about it? will it be strong enough, or is it merely a shelf queen?

The graphite chassis has too much flex for tc racing, but can be used for drag racing. The 4mm chassis has worked really well for tc racing.

Only Associated has that answer, while everyone else speculates. Keep in mind that Associated works on their electric side more than the nitro. They are foremost known for electric racing. Who knows what Thunder Tiger will do with the company. Again, only Associated would have an answer for you. You might want to keep an eye on their forum and news letters.

Yes, shelf queen............3Racing 4mm chassis is like bullet proof, if you don't mine the extra 200 grams of weigh....

That was addressed by me and tons of others NTC3 owner years ago (check the pages # of this thread....I don't even remember)....believe it or not, that bearing using BOTH.....METRIC for inside diameter and STANDARD for outside diameter...........totally CUSTOM made bearing.

No matter what you get from other bearing mfr, you will have 1 diemenion wrong........however, the NTC3 diff case is made in plastic, that allows a tiny bit of room for that extra 0.00231" of the outside diameter of the different. So your key is get the INSIDE diameter that can mate with the 1-way and let the outside diameter to get as close as possible to the standard bearing.

I have a feeling....NTC4 will be a BELT........don't ask, just a feeling. Then the electric TC4 will be called TC4B (stand for belt)....again, don't ask...just a guess that is totally possible.

i hope ae does come out with a new nitro tourer to keep up with all of the major kits like mtx-4 and 710 and if its going to be like what there past products have been like then i think it will be a very competitive car and will not be outdated within the first few years becase of 'new' technology.this has already been proven with the ntc3!!
